Inspired by the melting ice in Lapland, Wirkkala originally created the surface in the 1960s after carving into a graphic mold. An exclusive design reflecting the thousands of hours spent perfecting the glass-blowing technique required to produce the effect. The patterns gradually change as the glass burns the surface of the wooden molds.
